High Point Regional Nurses Recognized for Excellence
Eight nurses from High Point Regional Health System have been named to “The Great 100,” a peer-recognition organization of more than 1,000 registered nurses in North Carolina. This prestigious honor recognizes the excellence of a new group of nurses each year, based on peer nominations.
The Great 100 recipients from High Point Regional Health System include Melissa Aderhold, Sarah Clark and John Jefferies, MTU; Rita English, Nursing Administration; Debra Johnson, Day Hospital; Linda Kalafut, ED; Annette Stutts, PACU; and Kristen Vadney, Infection Control.
“We are very proud of our Great 100 nurses and pleased that their contributions to professional nursing have been acknowledged in such a meaningful way,” said Martha Barham, Vice President at High Point Regional.
The award is based on ethics, patient care and efforts to advance the nursing profession. The Great 100, Inc. was established in 1989 by a group of volunteer nurses to recognize excellence in nursing practice and to raise money for nursing scholarships in North Carolina. The 100 selected nurses will be honored at a gala celebration in October.
